Aug 21 2018 | SLAC
This summer, five graduate students from the University of Puerto Rico had the opportunity to use SLAC’s world-class facilities to keep their studies on track.
Aug 17 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A newly created two-piece fluorescent probe gets activated when it comes in contact with tuberculosis bacteria in a phlegm.
Jul 26 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A molecule called propionate inhibits the growth of Salmonella in mice and may be a promising new treatment for people sickened by the pathogen, according to a new Stanford study.
Jul 18 2018 | Stanford News
Stanford researchers have joined forces to learn how immune cells in some kidney transplant patients fight a common virus. The work could lead to a test to predict who is at risk, and possibly develop new treatments.
Jul 18 2018 | Stanford News
Boosting efforts to fight antibiotic resistance, Stanford researchers have found that a thin membrane, thought to be just a shrink wrap around some bacterial cell walls, has structural properties critical for survival. Drugs that destroy the membrane could be a new approach to treating infection.
Jul 16 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Scientists at Stanford used the wire to capture free-floating tumor cells in the blood, a technique that soon could be used in humans to yield an earlier cancer diagnosis.
Jun 27 2018 | Stanford News
Fanconi anemia is a rare but deadly disease, and there are no good drugs to treat its root cause. Now, Stanford researchers are developing a test that could help kids with the disease and millions more with related conditions.
Jun 26 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers used genetic-editing tools and stem cell technology to uncover whether a genetic mutation linked to a heart rhythm disorder was benign or pathogenic.
Jun 8 2018 | Stanford News
Twenty people with Stanford affiliations have been awarded 2018-19 Fulbright grants to further their studies in countries around the globe.
Jun 5 2018 | Stanford ChEM-H
Polly Fordyce is an assistant professor of genetics and bioengineering at Stanford University and a faculty fellow of Stanford ChEM-H. The Fordyce Lab develops novel tools to study molecular interactions. In a recent paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Fordyce...
May 23 2018 | Stanford News
Two researchers join 22 other Stanford faculty as Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators. The seven-year term frees faculty to pursue the most innovative biomedical research.
May 17 2018 | Stanford Engineering
​Applying the principles of mechanical engineering to biology, Stanford engineers create a new process to better understand how cells grow inside the human body.
Stanford chemistry professor Carolyn Bertozzi was elected to the Royal Society, the world's oldest national scientific institution.
May 14 2018 | Stanford Medicine
With a radioactive tracer, scientists can use a PET scan to quickly tell whether a cancer immunotherapy will be effective or not, according to a new Stanford study.
May 2 2018 | Stanford News
By combining computer simulations with laboratory experiments, an international team led by ChEM-H faculty fellow Ron Dror seeks to design more effective drugs with fewer dangerous side effects.
Apr 16 2018 | Stanford Engineering
Two bioengineers talk about why a better understanding of the relationship between humans and bacteria could be the future of medicine.​
Apr 3 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A circadian code controls the switch that produces fat cells, according to a new study by Stanford researchers.
Apr 2 2018 | Stanford Medicine
The only source of noscapine, a cough suppressant with potential anti-cancer properties, is opium poppies. Yet Stanford bioengineers have found a new way of producing the drug: reconstructing its biosynthetic pathway in yeast.
Mar 27 2018 | Stanford News
As Stanford engineers find new ways to push, pull and sometimes simply jiggle cells and even individual molecules, they’re also discovering microscopic answers to some of the biggest questions in biology and health.
Mar 12 2018 | Stanford Engineering
Stanford researchers have discovered a genetic “tuning knob” that can increase the size of harmful bacteria like E. coli, making them more susceptible to antibiotics.
